- The title most likely refers to Brooks being the 'swoon', and Jessie's relationship with him and New York City.
- The scene where Luke tries to steal Ravi's baseball and is almost crushed by a boulder falling down the stairs is a parody of Indiana Jones. The dramatic theme, the baseball on the pedestal and the boulder all refer to it.

- On the episode The Talented Mr. Kipling in Season 1 of this show, Mrs. Chesterfield says that she is only 32 years old. But, on this episode, she has a son that's slightly older than Jessie, and Jessie is almost 21 years old at this time. The question is: How old was Mrs. Chesterfield when she gave birth to Brooks?

- On the episode Badfellas in Season 1, Bertram says Jessie should get her teeth whitened and her teeth are yellow. However, when Brooks comes to the penthouse with the racehorse applications, he says Jessie has amazing dental records, which contradicts Bertram's point in the 20th episode of S1. However, he may have just been mocking the 18-year-old nanny.
